11/21/22 — FEATURE REQUEST! Please give us home and lock screen widgets for Emergency SOS! Trying to get to SOS is very slow and time consuming. This will save a lot of time and lives! I needed SOS a few days ago while driving because I was being followed and trying to activate this from the lock screen while driving wasn't safe nor helpful. You'll get 5 stars when we get this widget 😉
Stop complaining about your family having trust issues! Look into all the services that this app offers and think of how life saving this app is! It can even do things that not even the iPhone 14 can do. My family and I are all business owners and we're often going to unkown areas or sketchy neighborhoods. Having this app keeps everyone in the family in check of each other since we all have a mixture of Android and Apple devices. None of the minors have Bubble access, but all the adults do and we respect those bubbles. Yesterday, 9/9/22, my dad accidentally activated Emergency SOS. Within 5 minutes, everyone in the group and his emergency contacts were contacted, the app sent everyone his Live location, time and a text saying emergency services were on their way, then 3 fully armed police officers who at first glance looked like SWAT body builders were at the door. Not once did I see a cop this geared when just dialing 911 or when activating my iPhone's SOS 😑 Glad to see this is working and better than you dealing with emergencies yourself! No pointless, time consuming questions. Also the police did not shine their lights, did not activate their sirens and even parked a few houses down out of sight. After opening the door, they were very polite and even showed my dad how to cancel this in case it happens again.
Even the best kids can benefit by knowing we can learn things they would rather us not know. If my Dad had this back in the early 80’s when I was driving, it wouldn’t have been something I liked but it would have made me much safer. Technology is wonderful but can also cause kids to do things they shouldn’t (messing with their phone while driving &/or driving fast for example). My son didn’t realize I could see his top speeds! I wasn’t happy! Nor was he! Accountability! My youngest is about to turn 16 & I’m thankful for this app. If I find reckless activity, the vehicle gets parked & he’s back in the bus. I highly recommend this app! I have the free version & so far, it fits my needs. By the same token, my son can always see where I’m at. So he doesn’t have to worry about his Mom. Huge thank you to those responsible for providing Life360 for free to those like me that would not be able to have it otherwise! May God continue to bless you!
Once you get the settings on the phone correct, it has amazing accuracy. it’s the best family locator app I’ve found so far, after searching for years. Note: After several weeks, it looked like the app wasn’t working anymore for my family members that had android phones. I had to change the settings in the android phones in order to make the app work again for those phones. The settings you might need to change on your phone for each family member if they have an Android phone includes (but aren’t limited to) turning off the setting where the operating system will revoke location and other privileges if you don’t open the app for a little while. On an android phone, you might need to turn off battery optimization. Also, make sure on an android phone that you have it set to “precise” location.If I remember correctly, you can find the settings in the app section of “Settings” on the Android phone.
Everyone in my circle can see exactly where I am but I can't run the app on my iphone 12. It simply does not load. I've restarted my
phone several times and nothing is working. Also, parents, I don't really know if you need to know that bad where your kids are at all times. This app will tell you exactly where your kid's phone is down to the square foot and due to that it had forced me out of the closet to my family. When I go to places not registered on the map my mother will think I am dead and I think this app just gives parents a lot of unnecessary paranoia. You should build a relationship on mutual trust, not on secret stalking. I'm a legal adult and I am still tracked and there's no hope of me ever getting out from this app's grasp. It's entirely too much power. Try trusting your kids before getting this app.
I love life360 and have everyone in my family in a group but a last week two of our family members got into a crash and they both had less than 10%. if we didn’t see them i don’t know how long it would’ve been before we would’ve realized something was wrong or they could’ve gotten help some other way. I was wondering why emergency dispatch and all that wasn’t alerted and that’s when i noticed the limitations. i understand that may be out of your control but it blows my mind that it tracked them all the way to the hospital with less than 10% but wouldn’t save their lives. if there is ANY way to fix/change this or even just make it more known so people can keep their phones charged please do. other than that this is an amazing app and those features are still amazing.
I love this app it tracks my friends and family and I know when they’re safe. We all use it to make sure we all get home safely aren’t driving too fast and aren’t on our phones. We hold each other accountable and there has been many times my sis has gotten stuck on the highway doesn’t know where she’s at and this app helped us find her. UNTIL.. the new update! $15 A MONTH!! Think of all the other stuff we constantly pay for and now there’s a price on our safety?! A lot of people are going to stop using this app that’s supposed to help keep u safe just because we can’t afford it! Stop being TYRANTS and let this app be used for the good purpose it’s intended for and not just to steal from our pockets!
I don’t remember why my family got this app, but when my wife (then girlfriend) was stalked while while living in another town, I encouraged her to get the app too.
Present day, I get a notification on my phone from Life 360 that there was a sudden stop in my wife’s motion. I was afraid it was a crash, but thankfully she had just dropped her phone. I was able to locate it on the Highway thanks to Life360.
Finally, I just find the app super useful for finding someone’s location when I don’t want to bother with addresses (or if they just don’t know where they are).
This app has proven worth its weight in gold in situations where i need to check in with my kids, my kids need to check in on me due to health reasons, we become separated while out, and for finding lost phones. Now as the kids approach driving age, I feel a bit more at ease knowing they have this app. We recently upgraded to gold, BUT this app was invaluable to us in the free version, as well! 100% recommend for safety precautions, peace of mind, and for emergencies when you need to know where your troop is right away.
My best friend and I got into a really bad accident and within minutes life 360 was asking if I was ok and notified my friends of what happened and offered to dial 911 for us. I’d give it 5 stars because everyone got the notification that I was involved but no one got the notification for her when she is also on the app and in the car. Luckily we’re both okay just have a lot of emotional pain.
The app is great when it works but then my daughter has to constantly go into the app to ensure her location is shared with me or delete and redownload the app because it says no network or phone is off on my end. I watch and check her phone to see if she’s turned it off but it’s in fact on and location is set to always on. Getting kind of frustrated with the app.
